Calling All Volunteers!

Want to get more involved in your community? 

Want to accelerate the pace of the Bonita Estero Rail Trail project?

This is your chance! 

Friends of BERT is organizing volunteer committees, and we need you! 

Some of you have already headed North as “Season” is coming to a close. Don’t let that stop you! Join our effort to bring a safe place, away from traffic, to walk, run, bike. Volunteer at the link below. We will spend Spring and Summer planning and preparing so we hit the ground running in the Fall. 

The committees: 

  1. EVENTS: This committee will identify and staff events where Friends of BERT could set up its tent, banner, and tables to get the word out about the rails to trail project. If you enjoy organizing and talking with people about BERT, you’ll love this!
  2. MEMBERSHIP: This committee will focus its efforts building Friends of BERT membership throughout Lee and Collier Counties. Let’s take our story to Cape Coral and Fort Myers, as well as Naples and points South! Let’s continue to build out the endorsements from HOA communities! Bring your energy and ideas to this committee. 
  3. COMMUNICATIONS/SOCIAL MEDIA: This person or team will take our social media presence to a new level, and work on stories for the newsletter. We’ve had some good press, but we need to keep our stories fresh and in the news. 
  4. BUSINESS ENGAGEMENT: This committee will get businesses excited about the economic value of BERT and ask them to display posters and brochures. We will give businesses the opportunity to sponsor BERT and proudly display their business logo on BERT properties. 
  5. FUNDRAISING: This committee has been formed and will begin meeting in April and May. If you’d still like to join, let us know!!
